    It actually wasn't all that bad of an app...
    Can't people take a joke anymore? The target audience isn't exactly your conservative aunt Mary...

    They need to fire whoever thought that was a good idea.

    Good idea, bad execution. Surely they can think of better insults for male friends than small penis or large gut. I mean come on this isn't the 1950s

    And, it should have been entirely random.

    RPS has a bit more in depth coverage so just putting it into the mix. I dunno I mean yeah it was a bit on the tasteless side but when did everyone become so PC? I mean I have read alot of the comments and people are trying to make it out as Cyber Bullying and Death Threats??
    Like I said it was a clever idea just leaning a bit too far towards bad taste. I'm sorry I missed my opportunity to play with it. I know if I got one I certainly would have had a chuckle not think about calling the Cops or the ACLU.
    I get they were trying to be a bit tongue in cheek and it backfired but the amount of overblown reaction to it just makes me shake my head...

    But hey even bad publicity is still publicity.

    There's no way it would have ended well. It was a waste of resources at minimum and cyber-bullying lawsuits could come out of it at maximum.

    I don't know about anyone getting fired, but maybe written up, or a verbal warning :laugh:

    On Monty Python's old site they had an insult generator. It was great. I miss that. :(
